Savings rarely passed on to consumer

"...with all the savings that Fortis is going to have they will not have to ask for any more rate increases for the next few years, eh!!"

This letter is in response to the article regarding Fortis approval for smart meters (Fortis gets approval for smart meters, Trail Times, July 25).

In the article it states that Fortis will save us money by laying off meter readers, plus the fact that the theft of electricity costs us all will be reduced.

Gee, I guess with all the savings that Fortis is going to haveĀ  they will not have to ask for any more rate increases for the next few years, eh!!

Yeah, like that’s going to happen in the near future.

Just a thought: invest in solar panels.
